Norway's largest private sector labour union said on Wednesday it would later this month start blocking transit shipments of Tesla (TSLA.O) cars meant for the Swedish market, as part of a growing Nordic movement to support striking mechanics in Sweden.

I hope someone chimes in and tells us how great it is that Tesla can't operate in 2 countries that they clearly want to operate in now.

Until they have less demand than production, it's not a problem.

They're not there yet. Still only 5%.

Nope, not a Tesla fan. Low quality cars that are under-featured and overpriced. Stock priced as if that's more valuable than the combined automotive industrial might of the US, Japan, Germany, UK, France, Italy, combined. Clearly people are very, very high on hopium still to this day.

Small markets are small markets though. There's more people in just LA than all of Norway and Sweden combined. Norway has a better per capita but there's twice as many Swedes, and in both cases the incentives there continue to favor what Tesla doesn't make.

The irony of All-Tesla-Bad-News-All-The-Time from the same institutions that brought us All-Tesla-Good-News-All-The-Time should be apparent though. Same cars, same company, same behaviors since day 1. Then a Cali politician told Elon to go F himself over Covid restrictions and all of that goodwill unraveled.

Completely.

This isn't happening or whatever -------- you're trying to convince yourself of when you say companies randomly shell out loot to establish footprints in places where they have no intention of doing a nickel in sales because no one was reporting on it back before it happened.

Look, here's some more good Tesla news:

www.reuters.com

FTA:

COPENHAGEN, Dec 6 (Reuters) - PensionDanmark, one of Denmark's largest pension funds, said on Wednesday it had decided to sell its holdings in Tesla (TSLA.O) over the U.S. auto company's refusal to enter into agreements with labour unions.

The decision is part of a growing Nordic movement to force Tesla to sign collective bargaining agreements with Swedish mechanics, who have been on strike since October.

Labour unions in Norway and Denmark this week said they would start blocking transit shipments of Tesla cars meant for the Swedish market.

Nothing but blue skies for #11's god king though.

Every CEO wants pension funds to dump all shares it holds in their company.

Plus, you didn't see any news outlets reporting on it before it happened so it's probably not even happening or whatever.

I own 2 vehicles.

One of them gets 18MPG.

On the highway.

The other is a 1952 dodge power wagon.

Top speed is about 45mph, but it will pull a house down the street.

It's really good on gas.

And Tesla stock was at a high of around $400.00 in 2021.

So taking a step back and looking at the big picture are they really doing that well? The roll out of the cybertruck and how that goes will tell a lot about the future of Tesla stock.

Right now it is actually rated as a buy. Probably because it is so low and most likely to go up before it goes down. Depending on how well he handles the cybertruck and other issues.

I'm sure #11 will be here to tell us that in losing 40% of the value his god king has them right where he wants them.

I mean, do you understand how bad he is owning them by not being able to do business in multiple countries that he obviously wanted to do business in?!?!

Compared to the last 10 years? They're doing fine despite all my hopes they'd have eaten ---- by now for the arrogance and lies they told everybody. BUT! They're profitable, haven't outstripped demand, still have their completely unfounded reputation of advanced technology, and the Cybertruck is the new Escalade, a symbol of wealth and status featured in rap videos before it was even produced. If the low ASP Model 3 cannibalizing high ASP Model S sales didn't destroy the company, a truck won't either.

Swedish court rules against Tesla in labour dispute; Finnish union joins strike
www.reuters.com

... Tesla (TSLA.O) lost a chapter in a legal battle with Sweden's postal service on Thursday as a fight with Nordic trade unions escalates, with a Finnish union joining a port blockade that will prevent the carmaker from importing its vehicles to Sweden.

A Swedish court ruled PostNord does not for the time being need to deliver licence plates to Tesla that are being blocked by the postal service's workers, in the latest twist in a fight over collective bargaining agreements.

Tesla is facing growing pressure in the Nordic countries from powerful employee unions backing Swedish IF Metall's mechanics who went on strike on Oct. 27 demanding a collective agreement with the company.

Finnish transport workers' union AKT decided on Thursday to join the sympathy strike against Tesla, saying it would start a blockade of Tesla vehicles destined to Sweden in all Finnish ports from Dec. 20.

"That means Tesla vehicles or components destined to Swedish markets are not loaded by dockers," AKT said in a statement.

AKT's announcement followed similar decisions by Swedish, Danish and Norwegian dockworkers, meaning Tesla will be effectively barred from shipping its cars to Sweden. ...

Why would Tesla take any of this to court?

According to #21 this is great.

I'm sure before long #21 will be telling us that Tesla is actually profiting from not being able to do business in multiple countries, having pension funds dump all of their stocks, etc.

@#24 ... Why would Tesla take any of this to court? According to #21 this is great. ...

imo, #21 is looking at this, I'll call it, issue from a United States point of view.

But over in the Nordic region, things are different. Expectations of companies are different.

And that is why I said in #23, that this is becoming significant.

How well will Mr Musk adapt to the different rules that govern his operations in countries other than the US?

So far, he does not appear to be handing the problems he faces with an appropriate attitude.

As this recent court decision appears to show.


Time will tell...

Musk is an absentee owner for the most part. It's not "Mr Musk adapt". It's "How will this billion dollar corporations army of lawyers and economists adapt?" We already know the answer because it's already happening and the dock worker strike is still 12 days away.

Tesla lawyers are reworking the temporary injunction against they unions they received, then was suspended a few days later. They end run the postal union by picking up plates themselves and not having them mailed. They're going to truck the vehicles in.

It reads to me that Norwegian unions have decided that they are going to prohibit Norwegians from purchasing Teslas.

Hell, I'm cool with it if they are.
